Miami Beach, Florida
Live the ultimate island life in this ultra-luxe modern mansion where you wake up each morning to stunning panoramic views of Biscayne Bay and Downtown Miami in pure luxury.
A seductive climate, enticing beaches, unparalleled nightlife, and booming culinary scenes are just a few reasons Miami is the ultimate affluent playground. It comes as no surprise that the world-class destination has been known to be home to everyone from the infamous Al Capone to the talented Gloria Estefan to billionaire investor Carl Icahn. “Within this mecca, modern waterfront homes are in top demand and trade at the highest price per square foot,” explains Albert Justo, Luxury Real Estate Broker & Specialist at ONE Sotheby’s International Realty whose latest listing, a new modern waterfront haven on the exclusive Hibiscus Island, is awaiting a discerning owner who is seeking a luxury retreat in the heart of it all.
The premier 7,000 square foot, 5-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom mansion is not only located in one sexiest city in the world, it is located in the ultimate enclave on Hibiscus Island. Conveniently located between South Beach and Brickell/Downtown, the island is among one of Miami’s most sought after area. The exclusive tropical paradise is home to one luxurious estate after another. With the round the clock guarded gated entrance and top-notch security patrolling the islands residents are free to enjoy the best the island has to offer without safety concerns. Additional amenities include access to tennis and basketball courts and a private park. It is on this utopia, on a prime waterfront plot, that one can find that the architectural vision of architect Todd Martin has been transformed into an extraordinary home.
Drive though the privacy gates and be prepared to be transferred into your private Shangri La, as you’re immersed in a self-sustainable lush tropical garden. The dramatic cinematic entrance continues with a massive 20 plus foot glass door that leads to the illuminated glass foyer. The wow factor continues as the lines are blurred between the indoors and the outdoors. On one side the magical garden. On the other, the great room’s sliding retractable glass doors completely disappear and you are drawn to the crystal-clear infinity edge pool, outdoor lounge, and the waters of Biscayne Bay. If you can manage to tear away from the amazing views, the custom Arclinea chef’s kitchen is a work of art.
A floating staircase invites you to head upstairs where the master awaits. “The oversized master suite spans the entire rear of the second level. The sliding glass doors showcase the best views from the master bed. The master bath is adorned with the finest finishes including a large shower with views of the bay. The master closet will please any fashion guru and the large window at its edge allows natural light as well as views to the garden,” affirms Justo.
A glass elevator leads to the unique rooftop deck where you can enjoy cocktails and sunsets with 360-degree panoramic views of downtown and South Beach. Equally as rare, the modern manse has a detached guesthouse with its own designated entrance composed of a well-designed studio and full kitchen. Outside, the large dock can easily accommodate your 75-foot yacht, and yes, you will find yourself cruising the Atlantic Ocean in a matter of minutes. All these amenities are just a part of what awaits a discriminating owner of this slice of paradise.
